An analysis of algorithms for hardware evaluation of elementary functions
Franke, Richard H.
MetadataShow full item record
Algorithms for the automatic evaluation of elementary functions were studied. Available algorithms obtained from current literature were analyzed to determine their suitability for hardware implementation, in terms of their accuracy, convergence rate, and hardware requirements. The functions considered were quotient, arctangent, cosine/sine, exponential, power function, logarithm, tangent, square root, and product. (Author)
